I have quite a few grievances with LA. Mainly, I hate how car oriented the entire joint feels. I love walking–walking to the grocery store, to dinner, to no where in particular. After spending a bit of time there this April, I needed to put my sneakers to use and shake that uber-everywhere-culture. (but first, enjoy these lovely snaps of a smoggy sunset and gratuitous Nike photos)
On a beautiful Saturday afternoon, a few friends and I drove down the coast. We made it all the way to Rancho Palos Verdes–to Pelican Cove Park. This beautiful oceanside public park has a few trails that are quick and scenic, and it’s only about an hour south of LA. Don’t forget to swing by Monkish Brewing if you head out that way.
Now to the north, all the way to Santa Clarita. This beautiful little city’s provided the main locations for Westworld Seasons 1 and 2. Since the area has had an atypical amount of rain, it’s much greener than it usually is. Have you noticed all the wild flowers yet? I don’t think they qualify as a super bloom, but they are super pretty.Do you know any good day hikes in the LA area?
